New G.I. Bill worth every penny

Here is a link to the official Army story on the new G.I. Bill (S.22).  This puts teeth to the phrase “Support the troops.”

Here’s a link to the Department of Veterans Affairs site on the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008

As you may know, I like opinion writing.  There were several strong Op-Eds that brought needed attention to the debate over Veterans educational benefits.  They are here, here, and here.

And here’s some video about this issue:

Unfortunately, there was political back & forth on what seems to be such a simple issue–though debate is a key part of democracy.  A few blogs followed the politics of this bill.  Huff Post, Grassroots on Web helps GI Bill pass, Senators debate G.I. Bill .

If you know anyone who’s served since 9/11 be sure they are aware of the tremendous benefits of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.

Here is a FACT SHEET about the bill.  Enjoy!

Where else can you work for 2-3 years, leave your job, and get 100% of your tuition paid for with over $1,000 cash for living expenses?
